Sharpson – 4 Ur Ma (Spotify)

“Trance synths, acid and strong bassline, vocal effects and a banging kick result in a breakbeat success which you must not miss. Try not to move while listening to this rave hit and you'll fail!”

-Nagamag.com

Sharpson returns with a 90's rave banger '4 Ur Ma'. ‘4 Ur Ma’ is a love letter to the early UK rave scene. With influences from The Prodigy’s Jilted Generation album, 4 Ur Ma is a hard hitting breakbeat track with all of the hallmarks; trance synths, pitched up vocals and a hard hitting acid bassline. Starting off in typical breaks fashion, the track breaks convention by jumping into a hard, 4 To The Floor, techno beat. With vocal drops supplied by Wax White (Damien Guilfoyle / Gavin Furlong), two Irish Rappers, this tune has a local Dublin spin to it and definitely one for the Irish ravers. 4 Ur Ma is out now on ‘Choki Biki Records’.

Dimension – Remedy (Spotify)

“One of the UK's leading artists on electronic music just debut his latest single under the title Remedy featuring TS Gray on vocals and one thing is certain it will storm the charts and dancefloors with its distinct and well-defined uplifting aesthetic. A video clip shot on location in Mont Saint – Michael, France will follow short after the release”

Released on 16 October, ‘Remedy’ is the third single from Dimension’s forthcoming debut album. ‘Remedy’features vocals from future star TS Graye, and was co-written by renowned singer-songwriter Raye, who has previously worked on Dimension singles ‘Desire’ and ‘Black Church’. The forthcoming music video was shot on location in Mont Saint-Michel, France.

‘Remedy’ follows ‘Saviour’, which was co-written with ​Jem Cooke (Camelphat ‘Breathe’) and features ​Sharlene Hector. Released in the summer, ‘Saviour’ has had in excess of 3 million global streams, was made Tune Of The Week on BBC Radio 1, featured on Spotify playlists New Music Friday UK, Massive Dance Hits, and saw Dimension grace the cover of New Dance Revolution. Two more singles will be released before the album in February 2021.

With touring on hold in 2020 due to the pandemic, Dimension celebrated the release of ​‘Saviour’ ​with a ​special livestream event featuring top of the range production from a secret UK venue. The close of 2019 saw him unveil ​DIMENSION LIVE​, his sold-out debut live show at London’s prestigious Electric Brixton that attracted critical acclaim from ​Mixmag, RA, DJ Mag, Red Bull​, and beyond. The first immersive, multi-sensory experience in dance music, the show debuted ​Dimension’s showpiece glass mechanical structure - the centrepiece of a production that included a 50-piece state-of-the-art lighting system, laser walls, the largest ever LED screen to be installed in the venue, pyrotechnics and for the first time in a live music environment, scentology.

Followed closely by his debut ​BBC Radio One Essential Mix​, ​DIMENSION LIVE capped 12 months that began with the success of ​‘Desire’, ​his collaboration with ​Sub Focus​. The record’s list of achievements is near endless; it spent ​9 weeks on Radio 1’s playlist (5 on the A-list), has amassed over ​50 million ​global streams to date and has been certified a ​silver single ​in the UK by BPI (200,000 sales). Following ‘Desire’ ​came ​Dimension’s ​next string of solo releases, ​‘Devotion’ featuring Cameron Hayes, ‘If You Want To’ and ​‘Love To Give’ which all rapidly picked up midweek ​Annie Mac support alongside ​BBC Radio 1 plays from ​Phil Taggart’s Hype Chart​, ​Mistajam and ​Rene LaVice​; and together, combining in over ​20 million g​lobal streams to date.

On the live front, having begun last summer at ​Radio 1’s Big Weekend​, ​Dimension toured worldwide including Australia and New Zealand, North America and a return to Ibiza for another Amnesia residency at ​Together​. Other notable appearances included ​Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Audioriver, Dreambeach, and Beats For Love​. Further shows will be announced in due course, which will include a headline LIVE show at the groundbreaking ​Printworks London​.

Dimension’s combination of seemingly effortless musicality and production prowess first caught the attention of producers and DJs such as ​Andy C, Sub Focus, Chase & Status, Annie Mac (5x Hottest Records), Skrillex (who remixed the much-lauded ​‘UK’​), and ​deadmau5​. What was once one of dance music’s best kept secrets, but now with a rapidly growing global profile, ​Dimension is fast becoming one of the UK’s most notable – and intriguing – artists.

“One From The Heart...and one more from the Soul will add here. Elobrian Sunrise with this amazing minimal yet solid drum & bass offer us a laid back experience - not be fooled by the tempo and the drum and bass breaks - with soulful strings and vocal samples, engaging a wonderful relaxing atmosphere to soundtrack your moments in the background.”

In 2018, German producer, Elobrian Sunrise, teamed up with Texas based label, SVNSET WAVES and stunned listeners with his debut album, “Secret Garden”, a gorgeous collection of jazz & hip-hop influenced dreamy electronic tunes. His unique sound and easy-listening vibe earned the German artist over a million streams on Spotify. Since then, he has released a number of EP’s and beat tapes, but in October of 2020, Elobrian Sunrise teams up with SVNSET WAVES yet again to bring a new EP, along with a new sound, to listeners.

Visco City – Press and Release [OFFICIAL AUDIO] (Video)

“Press and release an oasis of layers with diversity in sound design, IDM break beats, intentional broken parts, glitches, lush atmosphere, nostalgic keys and a solid production which knows how to tease your ear senses. A beautiful piece of electronic art!”

-Nagamag.com

About The Song:

The third track from the Solstice EP is a musical representation of moving from fear-based thought to a more enlightened state of consciousness, Press and Release does just that – unfolds from a ‘pressed’ tension into a beautiful ‘release’ as it progresses.

Samples of newsreaders reporting the pain and suffering of our world, weaved in amongst gritty textures and growling distorted bass, are eventually interrupted by a voice that speaks of “accessing other levels of experience.” What follows is a drum and bass-meets-electronica climax of melancholy and meaning, decorated with beautiful piano and vocal refrains that sing, ending the EP on a crisp high note that is both exhilarating and hopeful.

About Visco City:

Influenced by Flume, Bonobo and Catching Flies – London producer Bobby Turner, AKA Visco City, creates melodic, ambient electronic music that strikes a balance between beauty and chaos – while invoking an inner sense of meaning for the listener.

Turner started making music at college, and this fresh creative outlet, paired with dubstep and drum & bass raves, ignited his passion for electronic music.

Fast-forward to the present, Bobby found a new love for the chilled-out, melodic side of the electronic spectrum, and Visco City was born.

After meeting Birmingham artist Ed Geater in 2020, Geater spotted his potential and Visco City quickly penned a deal with independent Birmingham label, Brox Records.

Turner’s debut release, Solstice EP, is a 3 track journey that carries the listener on a progressive, ethereal wave through a range of different textures and tempos.

With versatility and a talent for building sonic complexity while retaining that infectious, melodic simplicity, Visco City is undoubtedly one to watch in 2020 and beyond.

Dov1, Hooves – Deep Shish (Spotify)

Deep Shish, is the second time Dov1 & Hooves have collaborated on a tune. This one features a rolling groove, riding on a deep sub bass and some cheeky arpeggiation helps carry the rolling feel throughout.

NKOS – Lonely Ghost-Self (Video)

After their debut ‘Little Miss Numb’ last year and follow up ‘BOW (Brave Old World)’ only a month ago, NKOS are now back with synth/electro gem Lonely Ghost-self, their electronic take on break up, grief, solitude and pain. Building a path that will lead to the release of their debut album in October.

Single number three is now edging towards the digital launchpad, once again co-produced by Jagz Kooner, producer and remixer, doyen of ‘electronic rock & roll’ (it’s his own genre dammit). Co-producer of debut single Little Miss Numb’, Jagz lays a trail of aural breadcrumbs as to what you can expect from ‘Lonely Ghost-Self’, a track titled as if to be a winsome Belle and Sebastian B-Side but revealing a darker, heavier, jagged and harder hitting side to NKOS that was concealed by the dreamier, albeit bruising electronica of previous numbers ‘Little Miss Numb’ and ‘BOW (Brave Old World)’.

Initially a pan-national studio-based project, NKOS has evolved into a full band, one set to thrill on stages around the world. Brought together by friendship, the internet and sometimes sheer luck, NKOS comprise four artists from very different backgrounds – and locations – who share a love of deep, edgy electronica.

NKOS are releasing their debut album ‘From Dust To Life’ on Beatbuzz Records in October. The album will be available digitally via AWAL and OML Sync and physically in a limited edition metal box cassette with the option of cassette + walkman/cassette player also available.

Lyris: LONELY GHOST-SELF

I cut myself but I’m not bleeding
Rip my chest, my heart’s still beating
I’m alone what a crazy feeling
And I know I’m not forgiven

I’m chained to the love that I’m losing
Can’t face myself can’t stand my feelings
That’s my sin, the hell that I’m living
Maybe tomorrow I’ll give myself a new meaning

In this moment I need you most
But if you come to me will I face my ghost
I’m chained to the love that I’m losing Can’t face
myself can’t stand my feelings That’s my sin, that’s the

hell I’m living Maybe tomorrow I’ll give myself a new meaning

Meanwhile today doesn’t come to an end

And I’m waiting here with my lonely ghost-self
